---- "NO MAN STANDS SO TALL AS WHEN HE STOOPS TO HELP A CHILD” This is a photo of my husband, Randy Tribitt, who died assisting a young bronc rider to safety at a Little Britches Rodeo in Elk River, MN on July 4, 2004. The bronc turned and crashed into them, causing Randy and his horse to crash into the arena ground. He was pronounced dead at the scene. The 13-year old bronc rider was uninjured. Randy was a volunteer pick-up man for the Buffington Rodeo Co. Randy has always been my hero. He was a true friend and soul mate. He made me laugh and taught me love. He is a true cowboy. I love him and miss him so much. Diane.
